Snoop Dogg (@SnoopDogg) Calls for a Boycott of History Channel’s (@HISTORY) “Roots” Remake (@RootsSeries)!

snoop dogg hey mikey at;

The story of Roots and its broadcasting has always been controversial. When the first series debuted in the seventies, it was hailed as a masterpiece by most, but many people found it to be infuriating, insulting, and demeaning. Well, the remake of one of the greatest stories ever brought to television is debuting tonight and is being met with a little adversity from a surprising source–OG rapper, Snoop Dogg!

Snoop took to Instagram posting a video that called for a boycott of Roots, stating the following:

“12 Years a Slave, Roots, Underground… I can’t watch none of that shit,” he says. “They’re going to just keep beating that shit in our heads how they did us, huh? I don’t understand America. They just want to keep showing the abuse we took hundreds and hundreds of years ago. But guess what? We’re taking the same abuse. Think about that part.”

We can understand where Snoop is coming from, but this is the story that begin the legacy for so many black actors and actresses. It is important we move forward to the future, but we cannot forget our past. Slavery and the struggle are as much apart of the African-American experience as any of our accomplishments. We respect Snoop, but this remake deserves a chance. After all, no one complains when they remake a Ben Hur, Spider-Man, or Batman movie! #CutItOut Be sure you catch Roots 9 PM EST only on History Channel.

We’re sending a huge congratulatory message to Angela Simmons as she is expecting her first child. For weeks rumors have been circulating about Angela’s possible bun in the oven,  but now the news has officially been confirmed.

The 28-year old multi-talented fashionista was spotted walking with her fiancé , Sutton Sean Tennyson, sporting a new addition; a baby bump!

Simmons later took to her personal Instagram account to announce the pregnancy publicly. Although many fans assumed this news weeks ago, she finally put an end to all of the speculation.

Social media was hot on Angela’s trail analyzing her every move to try and discover the bump first. Every post including her frequent work out videos to her busy work life were scrutinized by the blogs and fans alike in order to bring truth to all of the rumors.

She recently got engaged to longtime boyfriend Tennyson sending the internet into a frenzy as well. The couple kept their relationship  so private that  it took several days for fans to even figure out who was Angela’s mystery guy.

Although fans seemed to know for sure, Angela constantly shut down the pregnancy so it’s no surprise that the announcement didn’t come until she was ready. Just as her older sister Vanessa and younger brother Jo-Jo, Angela is now the third member of the Simmons family to be expecting a child.
